Large Reservoir of 15-Acre Area and Small Lake to Solve Flood Problem MUST BUY LAND FOR SITE John R. Coffin, New York, Sets Price of $l5O an Acre; Awards Next Friday Bids for the construction of the storm water relief system for the river bottoms and for the paving of Front avenue were opened by the city com mission, Friday evening, and were held over for a week, when the contracts will be awarded at another special meeting next Friday evening. Cliff Lampman appeared to be low bidder on the storm water ditches and reservoirs which are to be constructed and the bid of the D. Haggart Construction company, Far go. seemed to be low on the paving. All of the bids will be subjected to calculation to determine definitely how they stand on their totals. Must Buy Land The storm water plans also call for the purchase of land for a 15-acre reservoir south of Bowen avenue and east of Kiwanis park. On this an im pounding reservoir is to be erected, from which the excess of surface drainage in times of heavy rain will be allowed to evaporate or to seep through the sandy subsoil. A lake with a and spillway is to be con structed on the Jackman coulee site, north of the memorial highway and a short distance west of the N. P. underpass on that highway. The runoff of this lake will be conveyed to the river through the existing san itary-sewer crossing the lowlands. Construction of the reservoir calls for the purchase of 15 acres of land from John R. Coffin, of New York, formerly of this city. He has author ized P. F. Wilcox, Jr., his agent here, to sell the land to the municipality at $l5O an acre, Coffin to retain the rights to any and all minerals under lying it. The city had made a lower offer, but Coffin refused it and sent on his ultimatum of $l5O. Construction of the drainage system will involve clearing of 16 rcres of land, throwing up 18,700 cubic yards of earth embankment, erection of four bridges, a reinforced concrete spillway and a reinforced concrete dam. Work must be begun not later than September 25 and be completed not later than November 1.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 1930 BRIDGE dummy plays the three, North the nine and East, the declarer, wins with the ten. Declarer now leads the king of hearts. If South should win the trick with the ace of hearts, dummy would play the deuce and North the three. South would now lead the seven of hearts, endeavoring to force the de clarer to go up with the queen, but the declarer in this case played the ten from dummy, North played the nine and East, the declarer, the four. With every suit still stopped, the declarer should now take his dia mond finesse by leading the three of diamonds from dummy. North plays the deuce and declarer finesses the jack, which holds the trick. Declarer now leads the six of hearts, South plays the jack, dummy winning the trick with the queen, North discard ing a small club. Declarer will now make his two good hearts in duixlmy, discarding two small clubs from his own hand, North would discard the deuce of spades and five of clubs while South would discard the six and eight of spades. Dummy now leads the four of dia monds, the declarer finessing the queen. Declarer now cashes his ace of diamonds, picking up the remain ing diamonds in the North and South hands. Declarer now leads the ten of clubs, throwing South in and all South can do is to cash his ace of clubs and must grant the declarer the last two spade tricks. While declarer has made four no trump, if South had refused to win the heart trick until it was led the third time, the declarer would have been forced to play the hand very skillfully in order to make two no trump. (Copyright, 1930, NEA Service, Inc. £ Farm Facts J Because of its good balance of nu< tritive elements, wheat is considered one of the best single grains for poul try. It is an excellent feed for grow ing, finishing and egg laying. Yearling ewes or ewe lambs secur ed now will have many years of pro duction ahead of them and should be at their best producing period when wool and lamb prices have improved. Bteele county farmers have found that once their lambs are free of stomach worms, they make better gains and are in much finer condi tion when marketing time arrives, says A. D. Collette, county agent. Too much “housekeeping” instead of "homemaking” is probably respon sible for much of the housewife’s drudgery. With the prospect of stock feeds going higher in price as winter ad vances, some savings may be made by planning and laying-in feed supplies now.

By Williams $ C\ I Additional Sportor j Louisville Wins Loop Tide; Will Batde Rochester Saints Are Beaton Out of Math ematical Chance Losing to Kansas City Chicago, Sept. 20.— (JP)—' The Colo nels from Louisville, Ky„ will repre sent the American association in the "little world series” against Rochester, of the International league, starting next Wednesday at Rochester. Even though they lost to Indian apolis, 9 to 7, yesterday, the Colonels became 1930 champions of the asso ciation, as St. Paul dropped one to Kansas City, last year’s title winner. Louisville was not regarded as any thing letter than a possibility far fourth place when the season opened. St. Paul managed to trim Louis ville’s margin to as little as two games on two occasions, but could never quite drag the Colonels down. Louisville’s margin today was three games, with only two games left on its schedule. St. Paul had three, but no chance of coming any closer than one-half game. ' : Kansas City made use of 12 hits to defeat St. Paul, 6 to 3, to ruin what ever chance the Saints had of getting up there. Minneapolis turned loose another vigorous attack to trounce Mil waukee, 18 to 8. The Millers, led by Slug Tolson, got 17 hits, and got a lot of good out of five Brewer errors. Manager Casey Stengel.

Louis Tourney With Surprise 66 Ralph Gudahl, Dallas, Tex„ Ap pears Man to Beat After . First Day Sunset Hill Country Club, St. Louis, Sept. 20.— (JP) —The "big shots” of pro fessional golf and some of the lead ing amateurs set out today in an at tempt to overhaul an "unknown,” 18- year-old Ralph Gudahl, Dallas, Texas, who paced the field yesterday in the opening round of the SIO,OOO St. Louis open. Gudahl, a fee oourse professional at Dallas, so Wttie knows before the start of the tournament the news papers mentioned him only in the list of entries, circled the oourse with a sensational 66, a half dozen under par. He bagged six birdies in his tri umphant round and stroked even par on the other holes. ' One stroke behind came two of the tournament favorites. Tommy Armour, Detroit, and "Light Horse Harry” Cooper, Chicago. Ed Dudley, Wil mington, Del., Abe Espinosa, Chicago,, and Eddie Williams, Cleveland, com pleted the list of those under 70, each turning in a 69. Walter Hagen, as usual, started out late and darkness overtook him after he had completed 16 holes. He will finish the round today. When it be came too dark to play, “The Haig” was three strokes better than par. Horton Smith, New York got a 70. Four More Marks Toppled by Heavy National Hitters Bill Terry Still Holds Batting Load; Mitchell and Phelps Head Hurlers New York, Sept. 20.—<>P) —Pour more records have fallen before the hOsky batsmen of the National league, the averages released today and which In clude Wednesday's games, reveal. Hack Wilson, Chicago’s stellar home run hitter, is possessor of two marks, and has contributed to the making of a third. Wilson, who broke the Na tional league home run record re cently, has added the all-time mark for batting in runs as he drove in his 176th tally with his 52nd home run. The former mark was 175, made by Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees. The Cubs, led by Wilson, have set a new club homer mark with a total of 160, eclipsing by two the record made by the Yankees in 1927. Chuck Klein of the Phillies finally has passed the modern National league record for doubles, set a year ago by Johnny Frederick, Brooklyn, by bringing his total to 53. The St. Louis Cardinals also have a National league double mark of 334 for the season, passing the record of 316 made by Pittsburgh in 1925. While not making any records, Bill Terry of New York still holds the batting lead with a mark of .401 and has a margin of eight points over his nearest rival, Babe Herman of Brook lyn, with only a little over a week of the season left. 'Frank O’Doul of Philadelphia has taken third place with a .365 average and behind him on the list of regulars come: Klein, Philadelphia. .384; Btephenson, Chi cago. .373; Lindstrom, New York, .367; P. Waner, Pittsburgh, .366; Traynor, Pittsburgh, .361; Watkins, St. Louis, .360; Cuyler, Chicago, .356, and Wil son, Chicago, .356. Klein and Cuyler are tied for the scaring lead with 146 runs with Wil son one behind. Terry has 240 hits, leading Klein by five. The Phila delphian also is second to Wilson with 154 runs batted in. Herman's 48 doubles give him second place. Adam Comorosky. Pittsburgh still holds the lead with his 23 triples with Paul Wader second at 17. Cuyler remains on top of the base stealers with a total of 35 while Herman is second with 18. Wally Barger of Boston has brought Me second piece hdate ran mark up to 37.

Jimmy Eleven Is Lacking in Vets For Coming Year Stiff Seven-Game Schedule Is Arranged; E. J. Cassell Is New Coach Jamestown, N. D„ Sept. 20.—Lack of seasoned material is the handi cap facing Coach E. J. Cassell as the Jamestown college football team begins its first round of practice for the coming schedule. Men to fill the tackle positions and a broken-field runner must be de veloped from as yet untested play ers. Inasmuch as this will be Cas sell’s first year at Jamestown his plans for offensive and defensive play are not yet determined. He has, however, two good pass receivers in Webber and Stone, so that if the occasion offers, the Jim mies may be taking to the air high and often. Regular training will commence Monday, when eight leter-men and several other members of last year's squad are expected to report. Bert Fergus, backfield star, has been lost for the year on account of injuries. Certain to be on hand Monday are Webber and Stone, ends; Pointen, center; Schwartz, Jurdy,*Watne, and Larrat, backs; and Willis Coons, guard, and captain of the Jimmy team. Other candidates for the varsity include. Hall, Adams, Boyd, Travis, McClain, and Jim Huey, who also is the student football manager. Among the freshmen who are count ed on for the season are O’Dell, Rouzie, Lanier, and Burgette, all of Jamestown, and Wanek, Setness, and Helden, who hail froih Reeder. A stiff seven-game schedule has been arranged. The homecoming game will be played in Jamestown Oct. 11, Huron college being the op ponent.

Lou Gehrig Seems Better Than Ever To Best Simmons New York Yank Has Good Lead in Batting Race; Mose Grove Tops Hurlers Chicago, Sept. 20. (AP) The race for the American League bat ting championship still has life, but Lou Gehrig' looks like better than an even bet to outfinish A 1 Simmons. In spite of dropping another five points to the pitchers during the twenty-second week of the campaign, unofficial figures which include Wednesday’s games showed the Yan kee first baseman out in * front by a margin of eight points over the Athletics’ pace setter. Gehrig’s mark was .382, while Simmons had .374, with Babe Ruth in third place at .360. Gehrig also clung grimly to two other leaderships. He batted in six runs to boost his season total to 162, while his total bases mounted to 461. Ruth continued as leader of the American league home run bri gade with 46, one more than last week, and had scored 145 runs to lead Simmons by three. All other leaderships remained in the same hands. Urban Hodapp, Cleveland, smacked out nine hits to lead that depart ment with 214, as well as getting another double during the week to lead with 46. Marty McManus, De troit, boosted his stolen base total to 23, an improvement of two, while Earl Combs, another Yankee, added two more triples to bring his leading total to 18. Gehrig, Simmons and Ruth were followed by the following regulars: Reynolds, Chicago, .354; Cochrane, Philadelphia, .354; Hodapp, Cleve land, .353; Cronin, Washington, .352; Porter. Cleveland, .352; Morgan, Cleveland, .351, and E. Rice, Wash ington, .351. The Yankees* group batting ef forts during the period produced a gain of one point, for a leading per centage of .307. Washington dropped a point but remained second with .304. The Athletics improved their team fielding average a point and continued to head the list with .976, with Washington second at .974. The double play battle between Boston and Detroit was tied up at 148 each. The individual pitching situation was dominated, as usual, by Robert Moses Grove, ace of the Athletics. Grove turned in one victorious per formance'during the week and his record of 27 triumphs and five de feats was far better than any of his rivals. - / Three other hurlers had won more than 20 games. Wes Ferrell of the Indians, had 24 victories and 12 de feats; George Eamshaw, Philadel phia righthander, had 23 and 11, while Ted Lyons of the Chicago White Sox. had accounted for 21 vic tories and 14 defeats. Grove re tained strikeout honors with a total of 196 in 48 games. CATCHER IS VERSATILE Paul Richards, who catches for Macon of the Sally league, is quite a guy.
